USGBC Arizona will hold its fifth annual Heavy Medals Awards Luncheon at the SRP PERA Club from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 19, 2017.
This Awards Luncheon is an opportunity to recognize the owners and their supporting teams for their extra effort to achieve LEED® certification for their buildings.
This in turn enables an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy and prosperous environment that improves quality of life for not only the building's inhabitants, but also for the community.
Joining us for this year's keynote presentation is Mark Hartman, Chief Sustainability Officer at the City of Phoenix. Hartman is charged to catalyze the long list of actions already underway to help Phoenix become a global leader in sustainability. Most recently, In April 2016, council approved the 2050 Environmental Goals and now, Hartman is working with departments to add in supplementary social and economic goals.
The 2017 Arizona Leader awards will be presented at the Heavy Medals Awards Luncheon to better recognize and elevate buildings in the state that are raising the bar for sustainable design. Projects that received LEED certification between June 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016 were eligible to nominate themselves for these awards.
